V1 is splendid Carol, but getting the wings open and moving in v2 is spectacular. We don't always think of these guys as being able to make a hasty getaway.

Evenin' Carol,
As Annette touched on, looks as if a prolonged stay in the rain has induced some oxidizationWink

Cold and foggy until dinner, then the sun broke through and we reached +5C

Two tremendous close ups Carol, Mikbee will love him because of his rustiness. I reckon he must have turned that colour as a result of all that rain and damp weather!Wink
